Synthesis of Best Practice for Design and Construction of Roadways and Airports Over Permafrost

This study is focused on using the existing literature to develop a synthesis of best practice for practitioners to use. Authors will be selected based on their expertise in design and construction practices on permafrost. Topics include, but are not limited to How the formation of permafrost defines ice content and the resulting thaw settlement. How permafrost and climate change impact planning Data collection including geotechnical information, vegetative cover, ground water, etc. How construction scheduling impacts the performance of the roadway over permafrost. Mitigation techniques, how they are applied, when to use them and when not to use them. How to include permafrost into Asset Management and Life Cycle Costs
